iPage web hosting that allows public image hosting site?

Click Here To View All Answers...

My question is iPage web hosting that allows public image hosting site? Many thanks for any answer. Another question I got... I have a dedicated IP address, I have bought a certificate from comodo..

I have installed the certs on my server using cpanel..

My problem is that the ssl folder is outside the public_html folder where the store is located..

I have copied the whole store into the ssl folder but I dont know what to put in the configure.php file.

Any help would be appreciated as my store is live and I am dont want to have to kill myself (would you want my death on your con, consci - mind LOL!.

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

Hi John,.

Thanks for the quick reply, I have changed enable ssl to true but I am struggling with the paths to use seeing as my ssl folder is outside my public_html folder..

These are the folders I see in smartftp.








Plus others.....

I read on another post that I needed to copy the entire catalog into my ssl folder, so I did and still cannot get it to work..

A lot of it depends upon how your host set up the paths for ssl. you should send off a help desk request, sometimes in the FAQ's on the host web site, you will find out what you need to do for ssl...

You shouldn't have to upload any files to a SSL folder.... talk to whoever set up your iPage hosting account. the SSL should be mapped to your iPage domain name, it basically should mirror it. https:// and http:// should point to the exact same directory if everything is set up correctly...

Put your files back in your public folder, you won't be able to access them outside of it!.

If you installed a cert, then you installed it for a specific domain. Use the iPage domain you bought with https:.


There is no moving of page content for ssl. That folder is for the program code and certs not web pages..

If the above iPage domain works then in your configure.php change your https entry to match the above...

Hi Guys,.

Thanks for all your replies, After a long conversation with comodo support yesterday and double checking everything I found that my webhost had not setup the dedicated ip address correctly..

That has now been done and my host is going to install the certs for me..

So lets see what problems come up this time!.

Why are web hosts such bad people to get responses from (or is it just mine!)???.

So when I get some news I will probably be back to say that I cant get my config files right or some other simple task that I am too thick to sort myself!.

Cheers Lads!.

Pages are non-existent on your https domain:.


Also, the Cert is not installed correctly as the common name should be the.


- yours is just "24-7mobileaccessories" by the look of it..

Get your host to try again..

Hi Gary,.

Thanks for your reply, I have sent an email with your comments to my web host and lets see what he says..

What do you mean by the pages are non-existant on the https domain? Does this mean they need to be somewhere other than where the store is now?.

Is my configure.php correct? or am I still missing something?.
